Perhaps I'm missing something, but as I tried to play around with wallet encryption I was sure I could take the same way back.
Instead of "encrypt wallet", I awaited the option "decrypt wallet" in the Bitcoin client GUI (0.6 RC4) which is not there.

Is that not implemented? How can I now decrypt the wallet again?

Anyone Wink? Didn't want to open another ticket on GitHub, as this has for sure been discussed before.

Or dump it with pywallet, and import em to a new wallet but preserving your old addresses.

I had hoped for an Bitcoin RPC call or GUI function Smiley. But perhaps its intended to not be able to decrypt ...

Necromancing this: any plan to at least make "dumpprivkey" accept the decryption key as argument? The function has to exist in the client, it's just a matter of making it reachable from the debug console... This is making me wish I hadn't encrypted my wallet... :/

Why?

Is it really that inconvenient to have to provide a separate instruction for the password?

Well, that's not very convenient at least... I should really try pywallet though, apparently it supports decryption: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=34028.msg708668#msg708668
